I will say that the epilogue saved this book for me. Had I not ventured off and read the epilogue on her site, I would have had mixed emotions. I can absolutely say that CF's writing was different than what I had expected. The beginning moved quite slowly but once I got into the story, I could barely put the book down. The deep issues that Matthew displayed throughout the book was somewhat dark. He was the tortured hero that made you want to get deeper inside his head. I liked Jane's character very much. I liked that he saw her when he couldn't see her (once you read it, you'll know what I'm talking about). The connection was intense and I was rooting for the couple all the way to the end. Speaking of the end, I was slightly disappointed that the end went down the way that it did. I don't like stories that end like this but even still I kind of understood that it had to go down that way. This was definitely not the typical ending but like I first mention, the epilogue was sweet.
